Derek Fengler Discrimination Gender and the Economy 4-9-01 Do Governments and Charities cause Poverty Not being able to have the three necessities of life food clothing and shelter That is what many would consider to be poverty What causes poverty to affect 11 million people nationwide What is it that makes poverty so hard for families to recover from Theresa Funiciello and others believe Governments and Charities are the reason Daniel Patrick Moynihan noted the astonishing consistency with which middle class professionals improved the condition of lower class groups by devising schemes that would first improve their own condition This resulted in middle class people making money then passing the leftovers on to poverty stricken people Funiciello explains that the resulting leftovers are far too little to ever help a family out of poverty I agree with Moynihan middle class professionals often do make sure they are benefited themselves before the poor I also agree with Funiciello that the meager 81420 dollars per month maximum available to a mother with five children in New York City is far from sufficient Are these the real reasons we have poverty the way we do today I believe these are just contributing factors not the cause In order to ever remedy this crisis we must look at the root of the problem For example we will look at a single mother with five children and only a high school education The mother has just separated from her husband and has kept the kids The mother should be receiving child support from her ex-husband If she is not strict laws on paying child support could make him pay This along with the assistance of programs like AFDC contributing money would be enough to suffice I feel the real cause of poverty is education If everyone in this country had a decent high school education and at least two years of specialized schooling there
